Welcome Home!

Lady Eaton College is the second oldest college on the Symons Campus of Trent University.  It was established in 1968 and is named in honour of Flora McCrea Eaton, who helped support the university during its founding.  For forty-five years, Lady Eaton has been a home-away-from-home for thousands of Trent graduates.

Lady Eaton College is a place to meet new friends and grow as a student.  However, the college is much more than residence.  It is the centre of college life for all members who live both on and off campus. At the college you will find the offices of the College Head and Academic Advisor who are there to help you on your path to success.  Nearby, you will also find the office of the College Cabinet where hardworking students work long hours to make your college experience as enjoyable as possible.  If you are inspired by them you too can get involved in the student government and make a difference to those around you.

The college is also the academic home for several departments such as History, Philosophy, Women Studies, Modern Languages and Literatures and the Queen’s-Trent Concurrent Education Programme.  You do not have to study in one of these disciplines, however, to be a part of the college.  The college is an interdisciplinary environment that encourages the coming together of all students regardless of their academic interests.

No matter your interest you will always be welcome at Lady Eaton.
